Skyrim Cosplay - Boots and gauntlets in progress

Here's a very short walkthrough of the making of Skyrim boots and gauntlets for my Dovahkiin cosplay
Other parts



Gauntlets - Iron Gauntlets

I didn't take that many pictures of this process. Basically cut out the shape in cardboard, curve it by making it wet and laying it on a curves surface. For the boot covers I taped the wet cardboard to a soda bottle. When Dried add strips of cardboard around the edges and a couple of furniture nails as detail.

Cover your molds in filler. It is easier to make sword slashes in wet filler than to sand them out, so be creative in this stage and slash about. When dried, sanded and painted silver it is time for weathering. (more about weathering)

  1. Ok, jeg skal plage deg litt mer xD

    Hvordan laget du detaljene på toppen av under-delen?

    1. Er det beltet du tenker på? Her har jeg tatt sirkler av papp som jeg har lagt pappleire over og formet til riktig mønster. Dette ble pusset ned og dekket med et lag sparkel. Siklene ble sydd fast i beltet (laget av brun skai) Til noen av detaljene har jeg bruk møbelspiker som har et ekstra stort hode.
